Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Some fine routes a long way from the road. Great multi-pitch routes up to 740ft, including Main Wall (HS 4b), The Grooves (E1 5b), Lubyanka (E3 6a) and Long Kesh (E5 6b).
A very, very long walk in from anywhere. Not the place to have an epic, accident or to get benighted. Head torch essential since you probably will come home in darkness anyway.
|As said already, the above access description is wrong. It's up at the top of the pass. You can see the car from the crag.|

|Ignore the above description - its not a long walk in. steep maybe but not long.|

|More N than E facing, hence it's in the shade most of the day. No pegs on belay at end of pitch 2 of Main Wall (as guidebook states) but belay is still possible.|
